I ve never read a book from a Holocaust survivor quite like this It s very different from anything I ve read, the way it s written, the words used, etc I m still not sure I exactly liked the style of writing but I am happy I read it I m happy for the experience. This Holocaust memoir is written differently from any other I ve read It s not in chronological order and a lot of times what s going on isn t really clear It s a series of images, some of them foggy, some of them mixed up, from the author s childhood and adolescence It s much literary than a lot of Holocaust memoirs Edvardson s mother was a novelist and according to the dust jacket, she herself has written other books.Cordelia Edvardson was the illegitimate daughter of a married Jewish man and a half Jewish mother She never knew her father, but she had an Aryan stepfather and was raised Catholic To protect her from the Nazis her mother had her adopted by some Spanish people so she could get a Spanish passport and be exempt from deportation, but eventually the ruse was discovered and, at fourteen or so, Cordelia was sent first to Theresienstadt and then to Auschwitz There she worked as a kind of secretary for Josef Mengele After
Not another Holocaust book this book is about a girl who grows up knowing little about her family, has never met her father but knows she is different and does not fit in with her surroundings or her family Fast forward to the girl at age 14, living in Berlin, and finding that her biological father was Jewish and she will therefore be sent to a concentration camp Which is what happens after her mother makes some rather feeble and ineffective efforts I thought to
Powerful, but too dark, about the holocaust, difficult to follow. Too abstract for me It didn t flow the way I wanted it to. Sicherlich wichtig, aber mit dem Stil konnte ich mich nicht anfreunden.
